f P. R. R. Planning to Build Annex
to Repair Shops as Result of
Interstate Commerce
Special to The Telegraph
Cresson. Pa.. July 12. Because of
the fact that the Interstate Commerce
Commission has issued an order pro
hibiting the hauling of defective cars
through tunnels, the Pennsylvania
Uailroad, it is reported, has decided to
enlarge and extensively improve its re
pair shops in Cresson. No official state
ment could be obtained and the report
is unconfirmed. However, railroad men
give much credence to the story.
There are few places along this sec
tion of the Pittsburgh Division where
cars can be repaired. Often times break
downs occur in this part of the moun
tain. but there was no great inconveni
ence as long as the cars could be taken
on east, through the Gallitzin tunnel,
to Altoona or other points where there
are shops.
Since the new ruling of the commis
sion. however, it is necessary for the
Pennsy to provide more and bigger re
pair shops. Cresson has been selected
as the point for this kind of work on i
this part of the division, it is said:
The new shops will be built as an ad
dition to the original shop building, it I
is reported. The company owns consid
erable ground in the vicinity of the
present shops and has plenty of space 1
on which to erect the new plant. The ,
old shops are only equipped to repair ;
wooden cars. The new plant will re- i
pair both steel and frame rolling stock. '

Borough Council Reinstates Patrol
man Who Has Been "Making
Fool of Wigfield"
It was necessary last evening for the
presiding officer of Steelton's council
' to cast the deciding vote when coun
| cil deadlocked on a resolution to re
-1 instate Patrolman Clinton Jones, who
i automatically resigned from the force
! by remaining off duty thirteen days
! without permission from Burgess
] Fred Wigfield.
The burgess sent council a letter
1 calling their attention 10 the officer's
i absence. He reported that in pursu-
I ance to the police regulations he had
1 informed the officer that it would be
| necessary for council to reappoint him
j before he could report for duty.
: After reading the letter, Mr. Ca
] pella moved that the communication
! be received and that the officer be re
• instated. Mr. Waggenbaugh opposed
; the motion and called attention to the
! recent controversy between the pa
, trolman, Burgess Wigfield and coun
| cil, Mr. Reisch also opposed the mo
tion, saying, "We should give that of
! ticer no further consideration. He is
j trying to make a fool of the burgess
j and evidently will not obey any regu
-1 lations." Mr. Waggenbaugh and Mr.
[ Zimmerman also took the stand that
| the officer should be dismissed. Mr.
; Henderson and Mr. Capella said no
i charges had been preferred and that
; inasmuch as the officer merely failed
I to report for duty, they thought Jones'
should be put back on the force.
Sellers Does the Trick
When a vote was called, Messrs.
Nelly, Capella and Henderson voted
reinstate Jones and Messrs. Reisch.
Waggenbaugh and Zimmerman voted
against reinstatement. Mr. Sellers.
I who was in the chair in the absence
of President Revnders then cast his
vote in favor of reinstatement. Mr.
Harlan, the only other member pres
ent, declined to vote.
Following the council meeting, a
Question was raised whether or not
council's action really put Patrolman
Jones back on the police force. Sec
tion 21 of the borough police regula
tions, the section which Burgess Wig
field called council's attention to,
reads as follows:
"Leave of absence from the bor
ough can only be obtained by anv !
policeman from the Chief Burgess
and must never be asked for without i
adequate cause: Provided. That leave 1
of absence shall not be granted by 1
the Chief Burgess for a longer period
than 24 hours at any one time with- ,
out the consent of the police commit- i
tee of the town council first had and
obtained, and any disobedience of this
rule shall be regarded as a resignation
fro_m the force."
Some of the councilmen hold that
inasmuch as the officer's action was
equivalent to a resignation he should
have been re-elected instead of rein- ,
ote Down Salary Booster
An attempt to boost the salary of,
r.dward Lewis, recently appointed 1
plumbing inspector and secretary of
the board of health, was voted down i
by council. Mr. Capella, who made I
the motion to reinstate Jones, ottered i
the resolution increasing Mr. Lewis' j
salary to $75 a month. Upon motion ;
of Mr. Nelly the resolution was 1
Lpon motion of Mr. Henderson the i
ordinance committee was instructed to t
have drawn an ordinance to adopt
Hyacinth alley, between Mohn and
Highland streets. A new sanitarv,
sewer will be laid in this street.
Other matters under the highway
department included council's author
ization to repair many sections of the
borough streets, to notify interested
parties to repair Front street paving
and to take steps to stop overflow of
surface water in vicinity of St. Ann's !
New Bleacher for Filter
Council appropriated S3OO to the
water board to purchase a new
"bleaching" apparatus for the filter
plant. A resolution permitting the bor- ;
ough secretary to purchase a new let- j
ter file and to have window screens
and screen doors placed on the police
station was passed.
Daniel Seaslioltz. Harry Keim and
Benjamin Shrauder were confirmed as

The motor fire apparatus discussion j
cropped up again in Mr. Seller s report
on the town property committee. No
action was taken, however.
Mrs. Mary Bancir, 4 4 years old. of
129 Frederick street, died in the Har- |
risburg hospital yesterday. She was:

eases. Funeral services will be held 1

; HitJwwiaiilfc a f problems this
fail. The proposed
■KSKWHi schedule, which was
worked out for the entire State and
which will affect every line from the
big systems to the small "farmer
lines," was prepared by the old State
Railroad Commission after eighteen
months' study of the situation and led
to the first physical valuation propo
sition undertaken by the commission,
this resulting from the objections filed
by the Bell Telephone system.
The commission has set July 27 and
2S as the date for the final argument
and the matter will then be given
serious consideration.
Commission to Meet. The State
Fisheries Commission will meet on
Monday at Bellefonte to open bids for
the new fireproof hatchery at the State
plant at that point and to outline the
work for the fall and winter. The last
meeting of the commission was held in
Philadelphia and this time attention
will be given to the development of
the Center county hatchery, which is
expected to furnish a large amount of
tiout. The superintendents of the
Slate hatcheries have been summoned
for a conference on July 2 4 at Pleas
ant Mount hatchery, when reports on
the prospects of the fall will be sub
Xo More Fancy Cuts.—The day of
the fancy illustrations in the State re
port is over for a while and those to
be issued this year and next will have
very few cuts and those only of an
essential character. The colored plates
which used to be an attractive—and
very expensive—feature of the State
reports have been done away with.
Owing to reductions made in the ap
propriations there will be little money
for cuts for State publications.
Charter Issued. —The Powell Hard
ware Company, of Jessup. was char
tered yesterday afternoon with $7,500.
Prominent residents of Lackawanna
county are incorporators.
Contract Awarded. The contract
for the new fish hatchery at Pleasant
Mount was awarded to the Forest City
Lumber Company at $10,987 yesterday
by Commissioner Bulier.

Service Commission is meeting in
Pittsburgh to-day to begin the West
moreland Water Company hearings.
It will meet here next week.
Decrease in Stock.—The Home Pat
ter Company, of Philadelphia, has filed
notice of decrease of its capital stock
from $900,000 to $400,000.
Will Have a 'Hearing.—The diffi
culties over the Coatesville water sup
ply, which has occupied public atten
tion for weelts, will be aired before the
Public Service Commission.
To Let Contract.—A new state con
tract for distribution of the public
documents will be awarded the latter
part of next month by Superintendent
of Public Printing A. N. Pomeroy un
der the act approved this Spring by
Governor Brumbaugh. The distri
bution of document* now covers all of
the departmental bulletins, which
were formerly handled by each branch
of the government as it pleased.
Raise Turkeys.—Dr. H A. Surface,
the State Zoologist, says that if people
raised more turkeys and other do
mestic fowls they would have
bother with grasshoppers and other
pests which have been so annoying
and destructive the last half-dozen
years. Dr. Surface says some of his
experiments show conclusively that
turkeys keep down grasshoppers and
are death to other pests.
Admit 175 Teachers One hundred
and seventy-five teachers have been
admitted to the State's summer schools
for training of teachers for service in
th« continuation schools to be opened
next year. There have been close to
500 applications all told. The time for
receiving applications will expire on
Thursday and it Is expected to open
the schools on Monday. The interest
taken is declared by State school offi
cials to be very gratifying.
Await Meeting.—Everyone connect
ed with the State Department of Agri
culture is eagerly awaiting the meet
ing of the new commission on Fridav.
when it is expected that the name of
the new executive officer will be com
municated to the commission and the
policy of the Governor outlined. The
reorganization of the department will
come gradually and there will be no
tearing up of things.
After Water Company.—Petitioners,
representing seventy-five meters in the
Seventeenth ward of Johnstown, have
requested the Public Service Commis
sion to see to it that the Johnstown
Water Company be directed to furnish
an adequate and proper supply of pure
water. The petitioners secure .their
domestic supply of water from wells
and springs located on their properties,
and as this supply has been condemned
by the health authorities the consum

its mains.

Reading, objecting to a charge of $5
by the company for disinfecting two

American Ship Used as
Shield by Submarine
By Associated Press
Liverpool, July 13.—How an Amer
ican ship is alleged to have been used
as a shield by a German submarine
before sinking another vessel is re
lated by the members of the crew of
the American bark Normandy which
has arrived here from Gulfport, Miss.
The story is that the Normandy was
stopped by a German submarine sixty
i miles southwest of Tuskard Rock, oft
. the southeast coast of Ireland Friday
, night. The captain was called aboard
. the submarine, where his papers were
. examined and found to show that the
; ship was chartered by an American
! firm January 5.
The captain of the bark, it was as
. serted, was allowed to return to the
> Normandy, but under threat that his
. ship would be destroyed unless he
, obeyed orders. These orders, it was
. stated, were that he was to act as a
, shield for the submarine, which lay
around the side of the bark, hiding
I itself from an approaching vessel.
; This vessel proved to be the Russian
; steamer Leo. Presently the sub
. marine submerged and proceeded
3 around the bow of the Normandy so
the story went, and ten minutes later
the crew of the Normandy saw the Leo
blown up.
Twenty-five persons were on board,
of whom 11 were drowned.

of "Unnecessary Risk"
Hermosa Beach, Cal., July 13.
William J. Bryan, former Secretary of
State, who is spending a brief vacation
here with his son. Issued a statement
to-day in explanation of what he
meant by "unnecessary risk" contained
in his comment in connection with the
last German note. He said:
"Any traveler takes ato unnecessary
risk when he goes into the war zone
on a belligerent ship, knowing that it
is subject to attack by submarine. A
traveler also takes unnecessary risks
when he rides on a neutral ship carry
ing ammunition.
"I believe that our Government
would be justified in separating pas
sengers from ammunition, but until
this is done, American travelers would
be justified in refusing to take pas
sage on a belligerent ship or a neutral
ship carrying ammunition.
"If patriotism requires a man to
risk his life for his country when his
country is engaged in war it would
seem to he patriotic for a citizen to
avoid risks that might Involve his
country in war."

rleburg, wanted by friends in Modesto.
Col., has not been located. Her brother
